The net­work, which will go live at the end of April, has been de­vel­oped us­ing closed groups on LinkedIn and Face­book to pro­vide sup­port for both for­mer and cur­rent pupils.

The net­work is fo­cused on sup­port­ing ca­reer devel­op­ment by help­ing for­mer stu­dents of Tyther­ing­ton School stay con­nected.

Ad­di­tion­ally, the net­work will also sup­port cur­rent pupils by con­nect­ing them with for­mer stu­dents to act as role mod­els, men­tors, or pro­vide work place­ments.

The school is al­ready busy sign­ing up pre­vi­ous stu­dents from the last 50 years.

Steve Jowett, the school’s head, said: “Th­ese for­mer pupils work in a fas­ci­nat­ing ar­ray of jobs.”

If you are a year 11, 12 or 13 stu­dent or a for­mer pupil of Tyther­ing­ton School and would like to join, go to the net­work page at www.tyther­ing­ton un­der the Sixth Form header or via the link on the par­ent, stu­dent or vis­i­tor pages.

To cel­e­brate 50 years of Tyther­ing­ton there will be events and projects through­out the year.

Plans are cur­rently un­der­way for a school fair, in­volv­ing the whole school com­mu­nity, to take place on Satur­day, June 27.

Stu­dents from the his­tory depart­ment are work­ing to pro­duce a timeline of events from 1965 to the present day.

It has also been sug­gested that some stu­dents might like to cre­ate a vi­sion of the ‘Tyther­ing­ton School of the Fu­ture’.

If you would like to find out more about the events and what is tak­ing place at Tyther­ing­ton School, or how to get in­volved, the point of con­tact is Sue Melville.
